Navigating waste on the journey to circular economy | Infosys InfyTV

What was considered as a good to have, is increasingly becoming a must have. And this rings true for organizations across the globe, especially as the conversation around topics such as sustainability, circular economy, and ESG metrices are gaining steam. Governments, environmental agencies, industry associations, among many others, are all moving to tackle this new reality of depleting resources, coupled with climate crisis, that we are faced with today. Everybody is thinking about it. Everybody is talking about it. Many are even doing something about it. What is missing, however, is bringing them all at the same table, says Dr. Trevor Thornton, a senior lecturer at Australia’s Deakin University. In an insightful conversation with Kamal Raj, who leads Solid Waste Management as part of the Green Initiatives team at Infosys, discussed with Thornton a range of topics from waste management, to circular economy. “It was Carl Sagan that said that waste is stuff that we are too stupid to use,” says Thornton, who believes that people across sections of the ecosystem, such as governments, businesses, industry associations and conservationists should work together to figure out how to actually manage waste better. “It was Carl Sagan that said that waste is stuff that we’re too stupid to use.” Thornton, who teaches at the Faculty of Science Engineering & Built Environment, School of Life & Environment Sciences, believes that at an organizational front some companies are looking at the aspect of circularity, and are realizing that this is the way of the future. “Some companies are saying that, yes, there is that environmental and social aspect of doing things. But they’re also realistic to know that there’s the economic benefits associated with it,” he says, adding that they are starting to use the principles of circular economy, and some are even entering…

Showcase ‘P-lab’: urban raw materials in a small-scale circular economy

Two to three carrots Manufacturer Laufen supplied two special toilets that separate the urine from the flushing water and the faeces. Conthe coupled these together with a waterless urinal to a bioreactor and a vacuum evaporator to recover various valuable nutrients plus high-quality water using a process of nitrification and distillation. Besides phosphorus, the plant also recovers nitrogen and small amounts of potassium and boron. Harmful substances such as drug residues and hormones are in principle removed during the process. “The plant can handle 30 litres of urine a day”, she explains, “that’s enough to deliver around 10g of phosphorus. Next to the container we have a small greenhouse where we use the recovered nutrients to feed various crops. This enables us to also study what effects different proportions of fertilisers have on different food crops.” In this way the urine of city dwellers can be used right away and on location to grow fruit and vegetables that the same city dwellers eat and then re-excrete…. and with the least possible burden on the environment. The result: a safe, small-scale recycling system that helps make cities circular. According to Conthe’s calculations, one pee provides enough nutrients to grow two to three carrots. “Scaling up this demonstrated process will enable us to go some way to meeting urban food needs. For example using forms of urban farming.”

Looking for a sustainable packaging solution? Choose metal packaging! | Metal Packaging Europe

Looking for a sustainable packaging solution? Choose metal packaging! Consumers, businesses and governments across Europe are all increasingly aware of the need to reduce waste and adopt sustainable practices. Initiatives such as the European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR), which takes place every November, help reinforce this by encouraging Europeans to carry out awareness-raising actions aimed at improving waste management. The metal packaging industry is proud to play a key role in reducing waste: infinitely recyclable with no loss of quality, it is hard to find a more sustainable packaging option than metal! With this year’s European Week for Waste Reduction set to take place from 21-29 November 2020, there’s no better time than now to explore why metal should be the first choice when it comes to sustainable packaging. Metal Recycles Forever Metal is a recycling champion. Around 80% of metal ever produced is still in use and, with a recycling rate of 82.5% for steel cans and 74.5% for beverage cans, metal packaging boasts among the highest packaging recycling rates in the European Union. As a permanent material that can be fully recycled over and over again with no loss of quality, metal forms part of a never-ending material loop, helping to create a truly resource-efficient society. Easy to recycle Metal packaging is designed for recycling: not only is metal a fully recyclable permanent material, it is also easy to recycle! Composed of one packaging material only, it is quick and easy to sort and separate from other waste and to then recycle into new packaging and products. Scrap metal is easily recovered from metal recycling plants, remelted and reshaped into new products, over and over again. Minimal invisible waste Many production processes result in a significant amount of invisible waste; waste produced during the manufacturing process. The…

Get to know the SSF Guidelines The principles in the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (SSF Guidelines) address policies, strategies and legal frameworks concerning small-scale fisheries, but also other matters affecting lives and livelihood in fishing communities. They have a clear human rights-based approach, and they put people, rather than fish, in focus. The SSF Guidelines are global in scope, and they guide dialogue, policy processes and actions at national, regional and international level. Key issues in the SSF Guidelines include managing resources and allocating tenure rights responsibly; supporting social development and decent work; looking at fish workers along the entire value chain from catching through processing to trading fish; promoting gender equality; and taking into account climate change and disaster risk. Explore the content of the SSF Guidelines by clicking on the themes.
